Workers Compensation Construction Accident Lawyer
Brooklyn NY Workers Compensation & Construction Accident Lawyer
Helping you get the benefits to which you have a legal right
Workers compensation in New York was born of tragedy more than a hundred years ago, when 146 laborers — most of them young women and one only 11 years old — died in the disastrous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. Today, employees from beauticians to welders are entitled to file a workers compensation claim when they sustain a job-related injury or suffer from an occupational disease.
While it may seem straightforward, there are times when a claim is denied or disputed, or the process becomes too complex. Not only have you earned your workers compensation benefits, they are your legal right. At the law office of Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP, we bring our skills, experience and passion for justice to protecting the rights of those injured on the job. As your Brooklyn attorney, we fight for you if you are suffering from any of the workplace injuries or conditions covered by New York workers compensation, including:
- Loss of hearing caused by repeated on-the-job noise exposure or an accident
- Eye injuries, including those leading to blindness
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord or back injuries
- Job-related cancers such as asbestos or mesothelioma
- Illness caused by workplace exposure to radiation or toxic chemicals
- Occupational asthma
- Chemical or thermal burns
- “Sick building” illnesses
What to do when you feel you are being treated unfairly
If your legitimate workers compensation claim has been denied or is being disputed, or if the insurance company’s offer is unreasonable, our experienced Staten Island and Brooklyn workers comp attorneys can help — no matter where you live in New York City or New York State. Whether your injury will keep you out of work for a period of time or you have suffered a permanent disability, if you are qualified to receive benefits, we make sure you are properly compensated. You may also be eligible to file a personal injury or third-party claim above and beyond your workers comp claim. In cases where your injury is so severe that it causes partial or permanent disability, we may also be able to help you seek additional damages. Our goal is to ensure that you receive all to which you are entitled.
